Ask Your Own Appliance Question

If the cycle isnt changing when you turn the dial then its going to be the control knob thats snapped on the shaft here.

What you need to do is remove the front control panel from the plastic console and there you will see the control dial.

You can remove this just by pulling it off.

Once off look at the shaft on the dial and you will see this has split here.

What you can do to try and repair get a small zip tie and wrapped it around the shaft and pull it tight and then cut the end off.

Then refit the control dial and this usually does the trick and works just fine.

Try that and see what you find and let me know.
